OMG Fifi, I actually saw the style as a recommendation for teen girls to wear in the most recent issue (at least that I saw) of Seventeen! I flipped the page and was like O_o oh children please don't take their advice. It looks like her hair is ridiculously oily but none of it goes past her ears so it's just dry and frazzled on the ends.

Meh, I've tried the Savannahs and didn't think they were anything special. Thin Mints, on the other hand? They're my favorites!

I'm laughing so hard considering recent discussion of Pocahontas and John Smith:

THE DARK SIDE HAS BETTER COOKIES, KAYB!!! [Hee, I like that the cookies you like are covered in powdered sugar and mine have chocolate on the outside.]

There's this one song that's in the mix they play for the yoga class I take and the last few times it's always been the song to kick off the corpse pose (shavasana) we finish with to cool down, and it tries to mess with me every time. The problem comes up in the very first lines. This dude's all, "I am colooorrrrblind. Coffee black and egg whiiiiiiiite," and I'm like, um, can you not? Or can you maybe assure me you're talking about actual colorblindness by referencing it again in any way in the rest of the song? I'm glad you're folding and unfolding and fine and stuff, but can you throw in a "I'm also totally chill with being unable to tell red and green apart"? How does this statement even relate to the rest of what you're saying? Everything else is just calming stuff about being happy with life or whatever, so why must you remind me of those jerkasses who deny the racist things they just said by claiming to be "colorblind"?

I will save you some!
My sister is Jewish, my other sister, cousins and I are not. So the dinner will follow the rules but the rest of us are boozin it up. : )

Shouldn't your Jewish sister be boozin' it up, too, except with the required glasses of wine? (Which I also can't drink, grrrrrr...) If she isn't, the Orthodox might like you better! They take the four glasses thing literally unlike everyone else and I hear they have quite the time on Passover despite the whole...y'know, Orthodoxy thing.

^ She's pretty lax and I'm sure she'll drink something, but will probably control herself better than the rest of us. : )

Just reading the posts on the nuclear stuff and a story comes on the news about the Japanese catching and shooting wild pigs who have moved into the area around Fukushima (?sp) and are apparently 'thriving' there. They're testing them for levels of radioactivity. Poor pigs, but I guess it'll give them an idea of what is happening in the environment around there.
I was brought up (and my parents still live) very near the Windscale nuclear reprocessing plant in the UK which was bad enough. They used to bury the waste nearby or send it out to sea. The Irish Sea was at one point the most radioactive sea in the world - I used to swim in it. Ugh. Now I live in a state in Australia where they used to test nuclear bombs back in the 50's (I think it was the 50's). They never told the people working there what was going on, let alone the indigenous people who lived there. It's still a restricted area all these years later.

But on a lighter note - I still have a Holly Hobby doll and china mug that I keep my make-up brushes in.

I just compared the male and female fitness requirements in all the branches of the US Military. Some are much closer than others.

What. WHAT AM I DOING. I started out reading a thread in 4a about natural hair in the military and then I fell down the freaking rabbit hole. Good grief. THIS HAS BEEN A POOR USE OF TIME I COULD HAVE SPENT SLEEPING.

On the plus side, it isn't 5 am yet. Yes, this counts as a plus side. Shut up, my head hurts and I'm all out of sense. You want some, you make it yourself.

Why is it that everything I have ever read about Vincent Van Gogh never truly captured the majesty of his paintings, the horror of his illness and the sadness of his death and yet one episode of stinking Doctor Who that merely fictionalized Van Gogh was able to clarify so much about his life, death and his works? Yes, there was an alien serial killer chicken in that episode, but if you look past the sci-fi, it gives a beautiful, gentle, humanizing view on talent, a person's feelings of self-worth and delicate insight into the tragedy of suicide.

Two days later and I still tear up when I think about it.

After I talked about Oak Ridge I caught part of a show about the Manhattan Project on The Weather Channel and as I was playing on You Tube later I caught a video about conditions in the different project sites. Los Alamos didn't have proper roads or adequate water. Oak Ridge was a giant, over crowded, mud hole and didn't have heat in most of the living quarters. It was slap dash building of secret cities, and I hope they at least enjoy the view. :-/

I remember reading about Windscale years ago. It was a quickly built result/aftermath of the Manhattan/Tuballoy joint effort, if I remember right. So scary.

Terrifying moments in history can unfortunately be rather interesting. I hate that any of it happened, period.

On a side note: I am at least glad that people are now sharing stories of the unknowing workers. In situations like the Manhattan Project its always been from the male, leader, perspective. It's about time the women (citizens) left behind, in the secret cities, were heard from.

ETA: (meant to add) It is sad hearing about the animals, but I am sure it is an accurate way to test some levels. I get annoyed by titles of Chernobyl video's and stories. "Hunting Mutant Beasts", calling people the mutants of Chernobyl, etc. I can only hope that more tact is used in similar situations. That, and hope it never happens again.

That is exactly what I thought when I saw it in a magazine, and in a bunch of runway shows. Noooooooooooo! Run! A great deal of things on the runway should be left there. It's a part of an artistic interpretation that should not be taken too literally.

That and quit trying to bring back the wet look, year after year. They have not had much luck with it catching on so they must be thinking half a head might work. Bahahaha.

Dear Amands Bynes,

Please turn off your flash while taking pictures of your hot mess self. I would like to see the full train wreck, unobstructed.

Thank you.
